Meeting Description:

The CFO Roundtable has expressed a commitment to increased learning and action around racial equity and inclusion. Specifically, the Roundtable has asked how can CFOs influence practices and policies within their organizations? This meeting will be a space to learn from one another, starting with a panel of your peer CFOs sharing how their foundations are approaching racial equity in practices, policies, and grantmaking.  

Break out room discussions will focus on brainstorming future learning for the Roundtable around racial equity.

Our speakers include:

  • Mark Paley, Director of Administration and Finance, Hyams Foundation as moderator
  • A panel of peers:
    • Amy Luster, Vice President for Finance and Operations, EdVestors
    • Jug Chokshi, Chief Operating Officer, New England Foundation for the Arts

​This meeting is being planned by a diversity, equity, and inclusion working group of the Network.  Working members are Amy Luster of EdVestors, Mark Paley of the Hyams Foundation, Debra Moniz of Cedar Tree Foundation, Kathleen Andriaccio of the Peter and Elizabeth C. Tower Foundation, and Maia Brodyfield of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts Foundation.

Zoom information will be sent via email in advance of the meeting.
